  1. Three-Minute Video Shows 500 Years of Women in Art

    Oh, silly me, I didn't realize men could only paint Madonnas!

    I expected this video to awe me with the evolving ways in which women have been depicted in classical art, but to my admittedly very untrained eye, not much seems to have changed over half a millennium. As Jezebel points out, it's just pretty white woman after pretty white woman here—aside from forehead proportions, not much seems to have changed.

  2. Dorkly Reminds Us Why Hufflepuff Is Puffin’ Awesome

    Not that I needed a reminder. 'Puff Pride!

    Dorkly asks: What would Harry Potter's life have been like if he'd been sorted into the other Hogwarts (and one non-Hogwarts) houses? Aside from having a lot more tonsil hockey. Also, because it's a holiday weekend where not much is happening, and I'm curious: What Hogwarts houses do you guys belong to? Can be self-identified or Pottermore, I don't care. As you may be able to guess from the headline, I'm Hufflepuff—or, as I saw it described on Tumblr one time, "the world's friendliest mafia."

  4. If You Sign a Mortgage in Russia, This Bank Will Lend You a Cat

    Now with zero purrcent interest!

    Russia is currently facing a mortgage market boom, and banks in the region are doing whatever they can to capitalize on the increased interest (pun not intended) in home ownership. One way to do it? Let people borrow a cat to play with in their new apartment or house. Seems like a pretty dumb reason to buy a house, Russ—oh no ahh, they're so cute! Never mind, I'm on board.

  5. Monday Cute: “Tiny Hamster” Has Returned With Some To-Scale Real Estate, Is Loving Life In the 1%

    Oh, just leave those seeds by the breakfast nook, the maid can get them.

    Life as a Tiny Hamster isn't just about tiny burritos and tiny pizza pies. Eventually, you have to settle down, get yourself an appropriately-sized job, maybe a tiny 401(k), eventually even some tiny property.

  6. The Most Uncommon Cosplay At Fan Expo Canada

    Four for you, unqiue cosplayer; you go, unique cosplayer.

    Everyone knows us Canadians tend to be a little wacky, what with our metric system, and Tim Hortons, and health care. But wacky isn't always a bad thing - especially not when it comes to cosplay! Fan Expo is always great for crazy costumes, but this year there was an influx of unusual outfits; for every Daenerys, there was a Robb Stark and a Melisandre walking the floor. Sam (that's me!) was there to check out all the cosplay action this weekend, and here are my fave uncommon cosplay finds.
